Tupac Shakur fans have a chance at owning a piece of history.

Goldin Auctions has announced a 10-lot auction of personal items from the late and legendary MC.

One of the most expensive highlights is a handwritten and signed essay titled “Is Thug Life Dead?” Originally sent to Nina Bhadreshwar, an employee at Death Row Records, the piece was meant to be printed as a message to youth. However, the essay was never published.

“I did not begin thug life,” ‘Pac writes in the piece. “I just personified it. I couldn’t stop it if I tried but in my heart the thug
ni**a has advanced 2 be a Boss Playa. So No Thug Life is Not Dead but in my heart it is. If U are sharp u will learn from this.”

The current bid for the letter is $10,000. In April, one of ‘Pac’s high school love letters sold for $35,000.

Other items up for sale include a handwritten letter to a childhood friend in 1988, his 1991 signed contracts for Juice and Poetic Justice , and his first contract with Digital Underground. Handwritten lyrics for “Catchin Feelings” and “Wonda Why They Call You B-I-T-C-H” are also available, along with commemorative plaques.
